“Recreating the pleasures of nineteenth-century platform entertainment with a tart contemporary twist, Donald Margulies’ SHIPWRECKED offers a self-promoting fabulist a forum to inform and persuade, and it delights in both respects.” -Variety. “The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies scampers to the defense of good old-fashioned yarn spinning with SHIPWRECKED. The breathless story of a Victorian gentleman [and] seafaring wanderer springs to life like a theatrical pop-up book.
